Testimonials

We love building and feel a sense of accomplishment with each home we complete. We also are proud of the relationships we have developed with our clients. Here are a comments from a few of our clients.

It's been about 5 months since we moved into our Charlie Ayres custom built home and I must say we are happier than words can express. Deb and I wanted to send you a quick thank you note and a letter of recommendation to share our experience and highlight to others what they will get with you as their builder.

Just to name a few:

  • Honesty, integrity, and a trustworthy builder every step of the way
  • Extreme professionalism from start to finish
  • Excellent communicator and timely follow-up skills
  • Accessible to the client any day or at any time of the day or night
  • Transparency with every phase and cost of the project (I loved this one as you know!)
  • Always airing on the side of QUALITY and explaining to us the “what” and the “why”
  • Fantastic sub-contractors that were accessible to us for questions and discussions
  • Staying on schedule and meeting the deadline you promised us in the beginning (I still remember the video you sent me on that last week where there were at least 30-35 subs onsite)
  • Flexibility of making changes on the fly and giving us the knowledge we would otherwise not have to make the right decision for us.
  • To top it off you’re a really great guy and you and Dianna are simply “good peoples”

It's hard to put into words everything that Charlie Ayres brings to the table, especially with a process as massive as building a custom home. I can merely say that if my wife and I ever decide to build another custom home we would absolutely 100% use Charlie Ayres Custom Homes.

Folks if you are reading this and are hesitant on which builder to choose for your custom built home and you would like to bump a few questions off someone that has been through the process with Charlie, please ask Charlie to give you my phone number as I would be more than happy to share our experience.

Thanks again Charlie!

We found Charlie to be very professional to work with. He was very cooperative in making changes during the planning phase and equally accommodating during the construction process. He was extremely patient as we worked through all the choices that had to be made. We would, without hesitation, recommend Ayres Custom Homes, Inc. to anyone considering building in central Kentucky.

Thanks again for helping us out last week. We truly appreciated it. It is so comforting to know that we built our house with such a caring and considerate builder. I hear horror stories of builders leaving folks high and dry or skimping out on the quality of the home. And, we feel blessed not to have joined in on those conversations. In fact, my co-workers looked at me in amazement when I recounted our story Monday morning!!

Back in 2005, Charlie built our current home. During the building process, he was very accommodating, attentive, and forthcoming--all traits new home buyers can only hope to find in a builder. Furthermore, it was a joy to work with him. He always has a positive attitude and truly goes the extra mile to make sure his home owners are happy. Even to this day, he has been so gracious in helping us out with questions we may have about our house. We definitely will have him build our next home and gladly recommend him to anyone interested in building a reliable and remarkable home.

Amanda & Jared Clark

We are proud to say Charlie Ayres constructed our new home for us. Without going into too much detail, every sub-contractor was of good character and provided excellent craftsmanship in a timely manner. We’ve been in the home 8 months and we have not had a single call back. Charlie is a straight shooter who takes pride in his work and he holds everyone involved to the highest standards. Charlie is an excellent communicator and problem solver who kept us informed up to the minute and he faced all issues directly without excuses. We are pleased to consider Charlie a friend and a fine man of the highest character.

Building your Dream Home – Ayres Custom Homes is the only way to go! After years of planning our “Dream House” my husband, Ron and I were finally ready to find a contractor and get to work. However, after years of planning, we had also heard every horror story about home building jobs from hell, complete with unscrupulous contractors, and a lack of integrity and quality of work.

With this in mind we began to search for a contractor who could bring our dream to life. After interviewing and researching the work of (and rejecting) every contractor we could find who would work in Mercer County, we were getting desperate when we got a referral for Ayres Custom Homes. What a blessing! We immediately had a personal connection, could relate to each other on this project and were very impressed with their work. We took a deep breath, signed the contract, and hoped for the best (but still planned for the worst as a result of all the previous horror stories we had heard).

To make a long story short, our every expectation was not only met, but exceeded – our dreams were turned into a reality – and it was one of the most enjoyable, rewarding experiences we have ever had. We got everything we wanted and looked for in a contractor:

  • An able contractor and project planner/manager – Always on top of the process, schedule and cost - answering our questions before we asked them.
  • Capable management of subcontractors who were professional, skilled workers in every line of work required from beginning to end
  • Always available and ready to discuss and recommend options wherever possible whether related to cost or quality. Always making sure we were able to make selections best for our budget and needs
  • And most of all, clear, courteous, timely communication – making sure we understood every step of the way what, how, and why things were being done. No surprises that would add cost to the project. Honesty and integrity.

As I said, the whole process was a joy, we got exactly what we wanted, and never once experienced any of the horrors we had been warned about. We never tire of sharing our beautiful Ayres Custom Homes home with others.

If you want to enjoy one of the most challenging projects you ever undertake – the building of your own home – I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Charlie and Diana Ayres at Ayres Custom Homes as your best possible choice.

Ron & Carolyn Ferreira

This note is written to you both as the sun streams into our kitchen nook and family room and my heart leaps in thanksgiving for the beautiful home you built for us! We have both been so comfortably enjoying the fruits of all of your quality subcontractors that it almost seems impossible to remember it was only last year when the flurry of activity was molding our dream in what seemed like an endless rhythm.

Charlie, we feel so blessed to have met you and Diana who guided us through this (our fourth and final build) with honesty and integrity and competency all packaged in that casual humor and comic wit that guided us through the often emotional and worrisome building times with assuredness and financial conscience.

The artistic side of me challenged so many “first” for both you and your contractors who would sometimes be scratching their heads as you would fix your gaze and smile: “We will make it happen” and you really would make it happen!

Rick and I aren’t forgetting the many, many, long distance long into the night telephone three way coordination calls you orchestrated for uninterrupted timing scheduling and selection needs.

Charlie, what we prized most of all in this build with you and Diana is the fact that you both were truly “involved” and took us personally to each major subcontractor for selection, pricing, coordination and you did not forsake us in the “process”, believe me, in our experiences of past builds, we never had such a comfortable “team feeling”! It felt to us that you were building our dream home as though it were your own and words fall short to express my gratitude for such a gift!

Thank you for never fearing innovation, for always prizing honesty, for unwavering timeliness of response and for selecting a team of likeminded subs to be a dream weaver.

Ever so gratefully,
Laurel and Rick Adams
